looking for a driver for this upcoming Sunday
pick up @tlv 2pm drive to Jerusalem make a few stops and head back to tlv at 730pm 
found a driver for $250 not sure if i am overpaying

IME $250 is within the ballpark range for a good driver with comfortable car.

Depends on their size.  And it seems a little bit arbitrary. As if the guy in the sorting center thinks it will fit in your mailbox or not but he doesn't know how big you mailbox is.
